Dear Hacienda Community,

I am reaching out to share some important news. Last night, the San José Unified Board of Education appointed me as the new Principal of Hammer Montessori Elementary School, beginning in the 2018-2019 school year.

Hacienda has been my home for the past seven years and has afforded me with some wonderful opportunities, first as a coach, and later an administrator. While my departure is bittersweet, a desire for additional professional growth led me to pursue this new role.

The students and families in the Hacienda community will always hold a special place in my heart, and I know that the next person to step into this office will feel the same.

The San José Unified Human Resources department will be reaching out to you soon to discuss the hiring process for a new Hacienda Principal. I strongly encourage you to get engaged in that process.

Thank you all for sending your wonderful children to our school, and for your kindness, participation, and amazing support. I will miss you dearly.

Kind regards,

Carmen Loy
